The Doug Mockett & Company’s Annual Design Competition is now accepting entries. With no limit on the number of winning entries, the competition typically has multiple winners every year. Each winner receives a $1,000 prize, an engraved trophy and royalties based on sales.
The competition continues to grow every year. Recent years have seen more and more international entries, making it a global platform for designers. The four winning entries from 2013 can be seen here and include table legs, wire managers and grommets.
To submit an idea, include a clear write-up about the idea; a drawing is better, and a model is best. An idea can be submitted for review via FedEx registered mail to the attention of: Design Competition, 1915 Abalone Ave., Torrance, CA 90501. Emails with PDFs will also be accepted: firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions can be directed to the Contest Administrator at 800-523-1269. More on the competition can be found here.
